Oeil (L'), la bouche et le reste

Look out, open your eyes! With this new work for four dancers, the Brazilian choreographer who sees everything invites you to see the question of ‘seeing’ differently. Starting from the eye and embracing all that is globular, like the sun, the egg, the moon or the arena, Volmir Cordeiro has created a dance that expresses the functions of the eye and then evokes its physicality and actions – crying, staring, winking, spying, etc. The eye is a tool for exploring interiority, latency, the pre-human, the tactile, the animal, the excitement of thought, and darkness and intensity. With this new work, Volmir Cordeiro is seeking to make ‘the eye that searches dance, the one that will look for the invisible, deep, hidden, mysterious mass of the world. That’s what I call the rest; the thing without a name, which cannot be looked at, subterranean, lost and unattainable; this matter capable of making us close our eyes and then cry out inside, and open our sight towards what we dare not look at. Dancing a dance that is embodied by the eye, dancing what the eye is unable to retain when it is in the process of looking, dancing what is left over in us, forgotten, rejected, set aside, dancing the obsessive fear of what one sees.’ Like Volmir Cordeiro’s previous works, L’œil la bouche et le reste is a flight into abstraction, life and the world, a dense, almost obsessive search during which nothing is ever left to chance.

Cordeiro, Volmir

Born in Brazil in 1987, Volmir Cordeiro initially studied theatre and subsequently worked with the choreographers Alejandro Ahmed, Cristina Moura and Lia Rodrigues. In 2011, he attended the Essais training course directed by Emmanuelle Huynh at the Centre national de danse contemporaine in Angers, and is currently writing a dissertation on figures of marginality in contemporary dance for the University of Paris 8.

In his first solo, Ciel (2012), Volmir Cordeiro sought, in a direct address to the audience, to experience the solitudes of men and women whom life has weakened, excluded or derailled. He recently joined Xavier Le Roy’s project Rétrospective in Salvador de Bahia, Rio de Janeiro and Paris, and will be performing in Emmanuelle Huynh’s next production.
